- Highest weekly take in 11-year West End run
- Highest yearly attendance at the Ambassadors theatre – over 135,000 tickets sold
- Huge Olympics boost after Stomp kicks off the London Closing Ceremony
STOMP has just celebrated the most successful year in its 11-year West End run. The multi-award winning, international hit show has enjoyed a phenomenal year at its London home, with 135,000 walking through the doors of the Ambassadors, breaking the record for highest annual audience ever at the theatre.
Rounding off a year in which the world’s eyes were on STOMP as it performed at the Closing Ceremony of the London Olympics, the show then celebrated the most successful week in its West End history in the last week of 2012.
Since its premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in 1991, Stomp has become a global phenomenon, showcasing a universal language of rhythm, theatre, comedy and dance that has resonated with audiences throughout the world. Eight performers use everything from Zippo lighters and plastic bags to bin lids and even the kitchen sink to hammer out an explosively feel-good rhythm. With new routines for 2013, the show is better than ever.
STOMP has toured the globe almost continuously for over 20 years, setting feet stamping, fingers drumming and adrenalin rushing for over 15 million people in 48 countries across 5 continents. It is currently playing in the UK, US, throughout Europe and Australia.
From a single drum hanging around Luke Cresswell’s neck back in 1991, STOMP has taken on a life of its own. Creators and co-directors Cresswell and Steve McNicholas developed a pulsating, witty, utterly irresistible theatrical event that has become a worldwide phenomenon.
